Did Their Riffs Break BBC4? Twitter Reviews Metallica’s Reading Set

Metallica headlined the Main Stage at Reading 2015 on the Saturday night (August 29). Those in the field were treated to a pyro extravaganza, dozens of balloons tossed into the crowd and, of course, more than sound hours of bludgeoning riffs. While Metallica feel like a very ‘Reading’ band, it was the metal Gods’ first return to Richfield Avenue for seven years. From those watching at home of the box (it was broadcast on BBC4) the reviews were largely positive. Here are some of Twitter’s most entertaining #metallica tweets.
